Welcome home

WHO WE ARE

Everyone is welcome.

UKirk (meaning “University Church”) is a network of ministries supported by the Presbyterian Church (USA). We are charged with reaching, loving, and teaching college students so they may be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. As a mission of the Presbytery of East Tennessee, UKirk at UTK is committed to being a home away from home for all students. We are a place of refuge, a safe space to ask questions, an environment where we can learn from one another and experience all the ways we can be the hands and feet of Christ in our community and around the world. We hope you’ll stop by and give us an opportunity to extend a warm welcome. Whether you’re a freshman or non-traditional student, Presbyterian or not Presbyterian, you’re invited.
